GreazeFest Brisbane goes off!!


The GreazeFest has once again lived up to its catch cry of being Australia’s all-killer no-filler kustom kulture weekender!

The koolest party this side of the planet has just nailed it's best weekend ever, with masses of hot rodders, throttle jockeys, red hot rockers and hopped-up hepcats rockin' all over the joint at GreazeFest Brisbane last weekend.





GreazeFest Melbourne is a hit!!

GreazeFest Melbourne was a hit and we captured that special feel good vibe that exists in our Kustom Kulture Kommunity.

Both GreazeFests were fun and exciting, and the festival road trip, plus the Wayne Hancock tour in the same week, have been the biggest Robot Productions ever.

Thank you to Teresa Bernardi, Kylie Lovejoy, BJ, Johnny, Mal Shields and everyone who participated, team members, managers, production crews, vendors, artists, bands, pinups, photographers, venues, plus the rockers and rodders who cruise through this crazy mixed up world with so much grace, charm and freedom. You are all wonderful and inspiring.

Wayne 'The Train' Hancock

Wayne Hancock is heading to Australia to perform at the GreazeFest Kustom Kulture Festivals.

Wayne The Train will be headlining both the Brisbane and Melbourne festivals.

Like the comfortable crackle of a Wurlitzer jukebox, Wayne Hancock is the embodiment of traditional rockabilly, hillbilly boogie and swing.

Wayne’s uncompromising interpretation of the music he loves is what defines him: steeped in traditional but never retro; bare bones but bone shaking; hardcore but with a swing.

The phrase most frequently echoed throughout his career is "Wayne Hancock is the real deal".

Performance dates:
GreazeFest Brisbane, Saturday August 2
GreazeFest Melbourne, Saturday August 9

Eddie Clendening

Eddie Clendening is raising the bar for authentic rockabilly music. Eddie has toured extensively with his group “The Blue Ribbon Boys” and is now heading to Australia to perform at GreazeFest.

The Planet Rockers at GreazeFest:

GreazeFest Director Lori Lee Cash talks to Lizzie Stafford at The Sunday Mail. An excerpt...

Looking back on rockabilly in Brisbane in the 1980s:

"You had to be really dedicated if you wanted to be into it and it was really only a handful of people who were into it. Whereas it's so easy to be cool now. Just Google it."

Speaking about the GreazeFest:

"I call GreazeFest 'Christmas for rockabillys'.

GreazeFest provides a backbone in the community... it's like a structure for people to thrive within. It gives them the opportunity to be around like-minded people - to completely be themselves and feel comfortable and safe and also to have that real social aspect."
GreazeFest Director Lori Lee Cash talks to Charley Rico at City News. An excerpt...

As founder of Robot Productions, Cash is the event director of the annual GreazeFest. She is well known in the scene for organising flawless rockabilly shows where the music is centre stage.

"This music has got mass appeal and it really only had a very small lifespan on the charts before it got watered down by the record companies turning it into something even more popular. It's pretty catchy - it's the beat, the slap bass and fabulous guitar riffs."

While the rockabilly movement appears stemmed in the yesteryear, Cash says she doesn't subscribe to living in the past.

"I've always been a supporter of what's current in the rockabilly genre" she says. "I've always wanted to represent what's happening now. There are so many bands out there now playing every weekend of the year that are writing music right now that just happens to be the same music stemmed from the 50s and they're doing it now because it's good music."




Rock'n'Roll Road Trip
- Lori Lee heads back to the U.S.A. for a smorgasbord of music in November 2011, catching up with Jason Lee Wilson and visiting the famous Smokehouse, as featured in the Best of GreazeFest Volume 2. Read the blog here


Saving Cats & Kittens

As part of our annual support of the RSPCA, GreazeFest has sponsored two pre-adoption pens at the new animal shelter recently built in Wacol. GreazeFest is a founding sponsor of the new site.


Festivals and Fun Times

The GreazeFest Team received an expected pat on the back on New Year's Eve.

The Courier Mail's final edition on December 31, 2011 ran a series of 'Spirit of Queensland' photos as visual markers from the past year.

Featured on the double page spread was a photo of Drea Morsby in July getting ready for GreazeFest!

It was the only photo that was about culture or fun, everything else was news or sport! The caption said "Festivals, events and fun times made their mark on the year. Here Brisbane artist and model gets ready for GreazeFest".
